Isn't that the truth! I agree, keep on trying or just wait until you arrive

We will have DD7 and DS4, who will have been up since about 5am to make our flight. Can we eat in the airport? Will we miss our ME ride to the resort? I'm not sure my little monsters will be able to wait to eat without a melt down.

The DME Bus for the trip TO your resort is not a scheduled bus. You can catch any bus that's leaving. If you take too long, your luggage may get there before you do tho

However, the DME bus FROM the resort to the airport is scheduled (3 hours before your flight) and if you miss it, you are stuck getting to the airport on your own.

Yeah I spoke with the Room Assignment Manager face to face a few times before the move from POR to SSR and he told me 7-10 days is fine.

Just a little tip that came in handy for me....

I brought a hanging sweater organizer and hung it on the "closet rod" in the sink area. I put all the folded clothes in that and used the small drawers for socks, undies, bathing suit etc. This worked great and they fold flat in the bottom of your luggage.

I need to remember to get one of these. It will also come in very handy for our cruise next year, I think.

Last month we were in room 1403 (garden view) which I thought was a great location. It was a short walk to the FC and parking lot. We had a car so being near the parking lot was a plus.

I've seen other posts about the a/c & ceiling fan. We used both to balance my liking it colder & my daughter wanting it warmer, and the temp in the room was fine day & night.

eating at the airport

The Orlando airport has a great food court. We always eat there before our flight home. And as PP said, you won't miss your bus.

Yeah no matter who you fly home on there is always some good choices. Even if a hotel bell CM has to borrow a car from the motorpool you'll get back to you hotel in time as long as you don't put yourself down to 30 minutes before you leave. I had to take someone from poly to POR about a week before my vacation because they had to be there in an hour and wait times for any transportation then wait for another to bring you back from say DTD or something. Your be over an hour depending on any stops there are between.

We are two couples staying at POR April 27 - May 3. We reserved preferred rooms at our travel agents suggestion. She also put upper floor and close together. We had originally booked garden view so we wouldn't be looking at a parking lot. When we fax our requests would it be better to do one fax for two couples? Can we add non parking lot view now? This is our very first visit to Disney....we are 50.....so this is a dream come true for us! I am getting so excited!

I am sure you will have a wonderful time. Yes it is nice to get your request but an room in Disney is better than no room at Disney so not fret too much and just take in the magic!

I plan to get one of these for this trip also. I am also going to get a pop up hamper for dirty clothes. I think it will fit nicely in the sink area, maybe under the wall safe. I plan to do laundry at least once.

We bring pop up hampers all the time and love them. They fold up and pack nice and they are great to take to the laundry if you have to do it while staying at the resorts. I may look into the hanging device the other poster spoke about, that might be nice to have since we are hoping to get a King in AB (already paid for King room).

Thanks everyone for the advice, good to know I can feed the kids without the worry of missing a bus.

Can't wait for our trip, my DH says I'm obsessed with planning our first trip to Disney.
